who fucking cares now
A recent piece from the Chicago Tribune confirms that Chance The Rapper will be releasing an album this week, before Saturday.
The article opens by saying, “It’ll be a busy week for Chance the Rapper. He’s finishing up the follow-up album to his Grammy-winning 2016 release Coloring Book, which he says will be out in a few days. He’s preparing to begin work on another album with Kanye West this month in Chicago. And he’s producing and headlining a major multiact charity event, the Special Olympics 50th Anniversary concert Saturday at Northerly Island.”
It then goes on to mention that Chance did not specify how the album would be released, only that it would be coming this week, before the Special Olympics, saying he’d like to keep his “options open.”Chance later talks about why we haven’t heard much from him in the form of original music since Coloring Book in 2016. “A lot of stuff I’ve worked on hasn’t come out since Coloring Book because it’s hard” when collaborating with artists limited by record deals, he said.
When speaking on the content of his new album he said “I got that feeling when people do something that has a new feel to it. I’m excited for everybody to get that. It’s going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics.”
Later in the article Chance talks about working with Kanye West on his own 7 track album much like the five albums Kanye just made for himself, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor:”His long-discussed collaboration with West may also be closer to reality, he says. They “casually” worked on two songs a few weeks ago while Chance visited West in Jackson Hole, Wyo., where West was completing a series of albums for himself and artists such as Pusha T and Kid Cudi.’
We’re up in the mountains around these wild animals — it’s very different out there — and we got some music done, and then he asked me if he could do an album with me,’ Chance says. ‘I don’t know of a timeline on it yet, the trajectory of it, but he’s coming here to work on it some more. We’ve just started making it, but I don’t want to manipulate the situation and impose any time frame, because that can hinder you.'”
So get ready to dance to some new Chance.
